Even Song - Tuesday after Proper 5

Tuesday - Evensong Invitation

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All    


Grace to you and peace from God our Fa-ther
and from the Lord Je-sus Christ.
Wor-ship the Lord in the beau-ty of his ho-li-ness;
let the whole earth trem-ble be-fore him.

Let my prayer be set forth in your sight as in-cense,
the lift-ing up of my hands as the eve-ning sac-ri-fice.
I will bless the Lord who gives me coun-sel;
my heart teach-es me, night af-ter night.

I have set the Lord al-ways be-fore me;
be-cause he is at my right hand, shall not fall.
O God, make speed to save us.
O Lord, make haste to help us.

Glo-ry to the Fath-er, and to the Son,
and to the Ho-ly Spi-rit:
as it was in the be-gin-ning, is now,
and will be for ev-er. A-men.



Tuesday - O Gracious Light

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All    


O gra-cious light, pure bright-ness
of the ev-er liv-ing Fath-er in heav-en,
O Je-sus Christ, ho-ly and bless-ed!
we sing your prais-es, God!

Now as we come to the set-ting of the sun,
and our eyes be-hold the ves-per light,
we sing your prais-es, God:
Fath-er, Son, and Ho-ly Spi-rit.

You are wor-thy at all times
to be praised by hap-py voic-es,
O Son of God, O Giv-er of life,
and to be glo-ri-fied through all the world.



Psalm 68

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All    


God springs into ac-tion!
His en-e-mies scat-ter;
his ad-ver-sar-ies run from him.
As smoke is driv-en a-way by the wind,

So you drive them a-way.
As wax melts be-fore fire,
so the wick-ed are de-stroyed be-fore God.
But the god-ly are hap-py;

They re-joice be-fore God
and are o-ver-come with joy.
Sing to God! Sing prais-es to his name!
Ex-alt the one who rides on the clouds!

For the Lord is his name!
Re-joice be-fore the Lord!
He is a fath-er to the fath-er-less
and an ad-vo-cate for wid-ows.

God rules from his ho-ly dwell-ing place.
God set-tles those who have been de-sert-ed in their own home;
he frees pris-on-ers and grants them pros-per-i-ty.
But sin-ful re-bels live in the de-sert.

O God, when you lead your peo-ple into bat-tle,
when you march through the waste-land,
the earth shakes, yes,
the heav-ens pour down rain be-fore God,

The God of Si-nai,
be-fore God, the God of Is-ra-el.
O God, you cause a-bun-dant show-ers
to fall on your cho-sen peo-ple.

When they are tired, you sus-tain them,
for you live a-mong them.
You sus-tain the op-pressed
with your good bles-sing, God.

The Lord speaks; man-y, man-y women spread the good news.
Kings lead-ing ar-mies run a-way!
They run a-way!
The love-ly la-dy of the house di-vides up the loot.

When you lie down a-mong the sheep-fold,
the wings of the dove are cov-ered with sil-ver
and with glit-ter-ing gold.
When the Sove-reign One scat-ters kings,

Let it snow on Zal-mon!
The moun-tain of Ba-shan is a tow-er-ing moun-tain;
the moun-tain of Ba-shan is a moun-tain with man-peaks.
Why do you look with en-vy, O moun-tains with man-peaks,

At the moun-tain where God has de-cid-ed to live?
In-deed the Lord will live there per-ma-nent-ly!
God has count-less char-i-ots;
they num-ber in the thou-sands.

The Lord comes from Si-nai in ho-ly splen-dor.
You as-cend on high, you have tak-en man-cap-tives.
You re-ceive trib-ute from men,
in-clud-ing e-ven sin-ful re-bel.

In-deed the Lord God lives there!
The Lord de-serves our praise!
Day af-ter day he car-ries our bur-dens,
the God who de-liv-ers us.

Our God is a God who de-liv-ers;
the Lord, the sove-reign Lord, can res-cue from death.
In-deed God strikes the heads of his en-e-mies,
the hair-y fore-heads of those who per-sist in re-bel-lion.

The Lord says, I will re-trieve them from Ba-shan,
I will bring them back from the depths of the sea,
so that your feet may stomp in their blood,
and your dogs may eat their por-tion of the en-e-mies' corps-es.

They see your pro-ces-sions, God
the pro-ces-sions of my God, my king,
who march-es a-long in ho-ly splen-dor.
Sing-ers walk in front; mu-si-cians fol-low

Play-ing their stringed in-stru-ments,
in the midst of young women play-ing tam-bou-rines.
In your large as-sem-blies praise God,
Praise the Lord, in the as-sem-blies of Is-ra-el!

There is lit-tle Ben-ja-min, their rul-er,
and the princ-es of Ju-dah in their robes,
a-long with the princ-es of Zeb-ulun
and the princ-es of Naph-ta-li.

God has de-creed that you will be pow-er-ful.
O God, you who have acted on our be-half,
dem-on-strate your pow-er.
Be-cause of your tem-ple in Je-ru-sa-lem,

Kings bring trib-ute to you.
Sound your bat-tle cry a-gainst the wild beast of the reed,
and the na-tions that as-sem-ble
like a herd of calves led by bulls!

They hum-ble them-selves
and of-fer gold and sil-ver as trib-ute.
God scat-ters the na-tions
that like to do bat-tle.

They come with red cloth from E-gypt,
E-thi-o-pi-a vol-un-tar-i-ly of-fers trib-ute to God.
O king-doms of the earth, sing to God!
Sing prais-es to the Lord,

To the one who rides through the sky from an-cient times!
Look! He thun-ders loud-ly.
Ac-knowl-edge God's pow-er,
his sove-reign-ty o-ver Is-ra-el,

And the pow-er he re-veals in the sky!
You are awe-in-spir-ing, God,
as you e-merge from your ho-ly tem-ple!
It is the God of Is-ra-el who gives the peo-ple pow-er and strength.

God de-serves praise!
Look! He thun-ders loud-ly.
Ac-knowl-edge God's pow-er,
his sove-reign-ty o-ver Is-ra-el,

Glo-ry to the Fath-er, and to the Son,
and to the Ho-ly Spi-rit:
as it was in the be-gin-ning, is now,
and will be for ev-er. A-men.



A reading from Matthew 15:29-39


When he left there, Jesus went along the Sea of Galilee. Then he went up a mountain, where he sat down. Then large crowds came to him bringing with them the lame, blind, crippled, mute, and many others. They laid them at his feet, and he healed them. As a result, the crowd was amazed when they saw the mute speaking, the crippled healthy, the lame walking, and the blind seeing, and they praised the God of Israel.

Then Jesus called the disciples and said, “I have compassion on the crowd, because they have already been here with me three days and they have nothing to eat. I don’t want to send them away hungry since they may faint on the way. ” The disciples said to him, “Where can we get enough bread in this desolate place to satisfy so great a crowd?” Jesus said to them, “How many loaves do you have?” 

They replied, “Seven – and a few small fish. ” After instructing the crowd to sit down on the ground, he took the seven loaves and the fish, and after giving thanks, he broke them and began giving them to the disciples, who then gave them to the crowds. They all ate and were satisfied, and they picked up the broken pieces left over, seven baskets full. Not counting children and women, there were four thousand men who ate. After sending away the crowd, he got into the boat and went to the region of Magadan.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!



Tuesday - Song of Mary

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All    


My soul pro-claims the great-ness of the Lord,
my spi-rit re-joic-es in God my Sav-ior;
for he has looked with fa-vor on his low-ly serv-ant.
From this day all gen-er-a-tions will call me blessed:

the Al-might-y has done great things for me,
and ho-ly is his Name.
He has mer-cy on those who fear him
in eve-ry gen-er-a-tion.

He has shown the strength of his arm,
he has scat-tered the proud in their con-ceit.
He has cast down the might-y from their thrones,
and has lift-ed up the low-ly.

He has filled the hun-gry with good things,
and the rich he has sent a-way emp-ty.
He has come to the help of his serv-ant Is-ra-el,
for he has re-mem-bered his prom-ise of mer-cy,

The prom-ise he made to our fath-ers,
to A-bra-ham and his chil-dren for-ev-er.
My soul pro-claims the great-ness of the Lord,
my spi-rit re-joic-es in God my Sav-ior;

Glo-ry to the Fath-er, and to the Son,
and to the Ho-ly Spi-rit:
as it was in the be-gin-ning, is now,
and will be for ev-er. A-men.



Tuesday Creed

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All    


We be-lieve in God, the Fath-er al-might-y,
cre-a-tor of heav-en and earth.
We be-lieve in Je-sus Christ,
his on-ly son, our Lord.

He was con-ceived by the pow-er of the Ho-ly Spi-rit
and born of the Vir-gin Ma-ry.
He suf-fered un-der Pon-tius Pi-late,
was cru-ci-fied, died, and was bur-ied.

He de-scend-ed to the dead.
On the third day he rose a-gain.
He a-scend-ed into heav-en,
and is seat-ed at the right hand of the Fath-er.

He will come a-gain
to judge the liv-ing and the dead.
We be-lieve in the Ho-ly Spi-rit,
the ho-ly cath-o-lic Church,

the com-mun-ion of saints,
the for-give-ness of sins,
the res-ur-rec-tion of the bod-y,
and the life ev-er-last-ing. A-men.

hal-low-ed be your Name.

Your king-dom come,
your will be done, on earth as in heav-en.
Give us to-day our dai-ly bread.
For-give us our sins as we for-give those who sin a-gainst us.

Save us from the time of tri-al,

For the king-dom, the pow-er, and the glo-ry are yours,
now and for ev-er. A-men.

That we may de-part this life in your faith and fear,

be-fore the great judg-ment seat of Christ,
We en-treat you, Lord.

That we may be bound to-geth-er by your Ho-ly Spi-rit

en-trust-ing one an-oth-er and all our life to Christ,
We en-treat you, Lord.
